New Xbox consoles teased at E3 2018

We don't expect much in the way of new hardware at E3 this year, and for the most part, Microsoft's press conference was in line with those expectations.

According to him, Microsoft is currently building the next Xbox consoles, so we have confirmation that the company is already preparing for the next generation.

Generation Zero is PUBG meets Stranger Things [Trailer 1]

Generation Zero is PUBG meets Stranger Things [Trailer 1]

The game Generation Zero is a formulaic combination of elements made solid as a video game for several platforms. In the first trailer you'll feel the culmination of several 1980's-vibe properties - like Stranger Things, Guardians of the Galaxy, etcetera. You'll also see a game that should remind you of PUBG. The game isn't described as working the same as PUBG, but as PUBG is the biggest game in this genre (cooperation FPS, outside of Fortnite), that's what people will think.

Hitman 2 launches later this year with a new co-op game mode

It was something of a risk to release 2016's Hitman reboot as an episodic game, but between solid reviews and a rather positive reaction from fans, it seems to have paid off. Developer IO Interactive is going to try to recreate that success later this year, today announcing Hitman 2 for a November release. This time around, it'll be serving up the exploits of Agent 47 with the help of a new publisher: Warner Bros Interactive.

Razer Dragon Ball FighterZ Fightsticks has lots of balls

Fighting games like Street Fighter started out on arcade cabinets with heavy-duty sticks and smashable buttons. And for those old enough to remember, that’s how those types of games are best played. But today’s gaming devices are not just more delicate, their gamepads don’t exactly give you the “feel” of dominating your opponent through convoluted combos. To offer that same experience to players of Dragon Ball FighterZ, Razer has teamed up with franchise owners Bandai Namco and Toei to bring all seven Dragon Balls at your literal fingertips with these Fightsticks for the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 systems.

Xbox One Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa integration spotted

Xbox One Google Assistant, Amazon Alexa integration spotted

Despite having the most “personality” among the smart assistants, thanks to being based on an actual game character, Cortana is perhaps even flatter than Apple’s Siri when it comes to capabilities. Microsoft might, instead, be opting to just embrace as many such assistants on its platforms as possible. Alexa has just recently made an appearance for the first time on Windows 10 desktops and notebooks and now it seems that the Xbox One will get double the fun with both Alexa and Google Assistant coming soon.

Team Sonic Racing is Sega’s next Mario Kart competitor

It might be hard to believe considering just how bad some modern Sonic games are, but Sega has actually managed to make some very solid racing games featuring everyone's favorite blue hedgehog. It's been a while since the last Sega All-Stars racing game (which was 2012's Sonic and All-Stars Racing Transformed), but today, Sega finally announced a follow up.
